President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi received a phone call from his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron on Thursday, his spokesman Bassam Rady said. 

During their conversation, the two presidents reviewed a number of regional issues, especially the situation in Libya.

El-Sisi asserted Egypt's firm stance supportive of the unity, stability and security of Libya and activating the will of its people.

The Egyptian president also reiterated Egypt's support for the Libyan National Army in its fight against terrorism and eradication of armed militias and organisations which have become a rising threat to regional security and the security of the Mediterranean region.

Macron, for his part, asserted the necessity of settling the Libyan crisis, which he said is endangering the security of the whole region.

The two sides agreed on intensifying efforts in this regard, according to the statement.

As per the situation in Sudan, El-Sisi asserted Egypt's backing to the choices and will of the Sudanese people, reiterating Egypt's full respect to Sudan's sovereignty and rejecting any interference in its internal affairs.

El-Sisi also pressed the need for intensifying international efforts to help Sudan end its current crisis and maintain its stability and security to achieve the best interests of the Sudanese people.
